These kids are thrilled anytime they have a chace to make a mess, so they were really happy with this activity. It was another simple one to set up (a requirement for me!) and the kids were thrilled with the outcome of their art.
Of course, I didn’t get a picture of the setup, but I just grabbed some muffin tins, filled each cup with some shaving cream and added some liquid watercolor to each cup. I didn’t even mix the color it, I just let the kids do that. To make it extra messy, I sprinkled some glitter in each cup to make the fluffy snow paint even more special.
My intention was for them to make Olaf paintings, but they were happy painting and creating, so I didn’t realy feel the need to give them much direction.
Eventually Audra ditched the paintbrush and started painting with her fingers, which was a fun sensory experience for her. This project doesneed heavier paper than regular printer paper. I used some leftover scrapbooking paper I have lying around, but cardstock or construction paper works great as well.
I just love the texture and colors of their 3D paintings! They turned out great and the kids had fun exploring different textures and mediums!
